Dresses are important but shoes are fundamental to achieve a perfect look, because footwear defines the personality of the outfit adding a crucial element to the entire figure.
Having said that, shoes have conquered the runways in Spring / Summer 2017 and luxury brands as well as young talents decided to created new designs, playing with shapes and lines in order to give life to new footwear pieces that became must haves for S/S 2017 season.
2017 has no fashion rules because brands presented a kaleidoscope of designs, silhouettes, textures and dimensions that draw inspiration from disparate worlds, like 70’s style, sportwear, 50’s elegance and 80’s bold vibes.
So since Spring is always a good excuse to renovate your wardrobe searching for the latest fashion trend, let’s discover the ultimate Spring / Summer 2017 Shoes must haves:
#1 FLORAL PRINTS
Floral prints are always on-trend for S/S season, and in 2017 this delicate pattern also conquered the footwear section. For example Gianbattista Valli decided to pair tiny floral elements to pointed boots with stiletto heels, adding some naïve accents to a bold design.
#2 SPORTY CHIC
Who said that a chic and retrò inspired shoe can be mixed with some sporty vibes? Fenty x Puma experimented this new footwear concept for Spring / Summer 2017, mixing athleisure details to a lady-like shoe in aqua-blue, creating an unique fusion that has become a must have piece for every fashionista.
#3 BOLD PLATFORMS
Bold platforms are a trend that has been around for quite some time now, but for Spring / Summer 2017 season it has evolved, adopting more of a futuristic style. This is the case of Issey Miyake who gave life to a visionary platform sandal that plays around with geometric lines and cool pop colors like vibrant fuchsia.

The sheer plastic is for sure one of the most unusual trends, and rapper & designer Kanye West launched the trend with its Yeezy Season 4 Spring 2017 collection, presenting some sheer plastic thigh-high boots that instantly became a huge staple piece.
